Technical Stuff / Re: Tyres for Mk2 3.2 TT

On a side note, is it me or is the 18X9+52 turbines one of the best wheels for the Audi TT ? nice design 11 years on, high offset (+52) and 9" wide. I've looked high and low in the $1000-$2000 range of 18X8.5 and even 19X8.5 range and have yet to find something that really tickles my fancy to make the change.

About the only thing to come close was the DOTZ Revvo Bronze which would look great on a silver TT.

PS4 at Hyper, an extra $380 over the cost of the Nexan Nefera SU1 Hmmmmmmmm (decides if its worth the extra $$$...Bourbon currency conversion in progress).

Reviews note High Rolling Resistance...no doubt because the wet and dry grip are almost identical but they do have a 87% rating and came #1 in many recent summer tyre tests.

I had a set of 17" PS's fitted at Tyre Tech just last week, the guys said that there's a limited set of sizes available for PS4 S so you might want to check on availability

I think it goes: PS4, impressive; PS4 S, more impressive; Cup (if you can get them) very impressive

So it seems 255/40/18 are not available down my way at Bridgestone, the S700A is but that is like $2000 a set and currently little to no reviews.

So looking like the Nexan SU1 on Tuesday is my best bet, $1200 and I know how they perform.

Next year or so will be minimal open road driving and back to my round town \ shopping cart routine so Pilot PS4 or Super Sports would be wasted. Perhaps when the TTRS or R8 is in the garage :)


FYI, quick inspection last night showed a patch of cord on the front inner shoulder coming through (very small area <5mm), so the current tyres are well and truly done, safe to do 120 kms distance on ?

with tyres you definitely get what you paid for.

with deals some sizes of ps4 are close to re003 in price but lightyears ahead in performance.

ps4s is even better, ps cup 2 best !

back on planet earth, toyo, yokohama, hankook also have good affordable tyres.

is the op's 255/40-18 size correct ?

not driven on falken 510 but 452/453 were mediocre at best.
